What we’re reading: 

Is the network the 21st century unit of action? And how do networks relate to ecosystem economies

We see the network approach working for new business models and policy campaigns. Dock to Dish’s business model relies on a network of participating fishermen who all fish responsibly and are careful stewards of their fish. A network of fishermen, activists, and food lovers around the country have been supporting Bristol Bay fishermen in their efforts to stop Pebble Mine from being built nearby – and the EPA agrees with their position. 

What does the new Farm Bill mean for the sustainable food movement? Without subsidy reform, will food remain “dishonestly priced?”And what about labor reform? Looks like some new strong women leaders are showing the way. 

Lawmakers are considering a “buy local” campaign for Massachusetts seafood; temps are rising and fish are shrinking; Southern California’s marine sanctuaries are working – fish are bigger and there’s more biodiversity, and the boundaries are being honored.
